EastEnders star Zaraah Abrahams calls for Chelsea and Ruby alliance
Zaraah Abrahams, who plays Chelsea Fox on EastEnders, has revealed her hopes for a new friendship for her character, calling for a team-up between Chelsea and Ruby Allen.
Zaraah told Media exclusively that she and Ruby’s actress Louisa Lytton are close friends in real life and that she’s excited for them to start spending more time together on set.
“Louisa and I have known each other for a long time,” she explained. “We met when I was 20 years old, and I am now 34 years old. She’s my little bestie because we spend so much time together. It’s unbelievable that we’re now co-hosting the show.”
Chelsea revealed that she would “absolutely” love to see Chelsea and Ruby form a friendship on Albert Square, explaining that, aside from the real-life chemistry she and Louisa could bring to their relationship, a team-up would also make sense for the characters.
Zaraah explained why she wants the characters to become friends, “Not just because I love Louisa, but because they are both young women.” “Ruby has a business mind, but she’s also a little snakey, and I think Chelsea would appreciate a little of that.”
“She enjoys the high-flying lifestyle. I believe they could devise some devious schemes together.”
Chelsea and Ruby have both devised some brilliant schemes.
Chelsea’s drugs plot involving her father Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet) reached a climax last week, and both Chelsea and Ruby have been hatching big schemes lately.
Meanwhile, Ruby is plotting against her former friend Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), and has recently gotten her arrested after lying that she was attacked by Stacey by pushing her down some stairs.
Meanwhile, Chelsea may soon be dealing with another secret, as Zaraah has hinted that Chelsea’s romantic past with Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) may be revisited – despite the fact that he is now engaged to her mother Denise Fox (Diane Parish).
“I’m not sure if she’s really done with Jack,” says the narrator.
